    Once you have found the citation of a journal article you're interested in, click on the Check for Full Text buttons found next to the citation, or run a journal title search in Trexler Library's Encompass Search.


      How can I narrow my topic and identify seminal scholarly works?

      • Encyclopedia of Buddhism
        Available by library subscription. Entries written by leading scholars in the field.
      • Encyclopedia of Religion
        The second edition of a resource that is considered a standard reference in the field. Presents a cross-cultural approach that emphasizes religion's role within everyday life and as a unique experience from culture to culture. The original 2,750 entries have been retained, many heavily updated, and approximately 600 entirely new articles have been added by an international team of scholars and contributors.

      How do I locate scholarly books on my topic?

      • Encompass Search
        Encompass Search searches for books and other resources, first in our own library, and then beyond, in other research libraries.
      • Google Books
        Portions or full text are available for some books. Use WorldCat to acquire the full text of recent scholarly texts where only snippets are available online.

      How do I locate scholarly articles (chapters or journal articles) on my topic?

      • Academic Search Complete
        Available by library subscription. Limit to "peer reviewed" or "academic journals" to get at the scholarly journals.
      • ATLA Religion
        Available by library subscription. Specific to religion studies. Use caution here: not all sources included here are scholarly.
      • Google Scholar
        Free resource. Some full text may be available, especially when searching from campus where library-subscribed full text is often linked directly to Google Scholar. The surest way to verify all points of Muhlenberg access to any full text is to run a journal title search in the library catalog for the article in question.
      • JSTOR
        Available by library subscription. Archive from Stanford University of scholarly journals in all subject areas.
